Crispy blackened shrimp completes this flour tortilla taco that has julienne sliced jicama and carrots with spinach, peach salsa, and sliced avocado!
I also paired the blackened shrimp tacos with my homemade peach salsa. The sweet fruit paired well with the spice from the blackening seasoning pairs perfectly. It’s refreshing taco and light weight but full of flavor. So as the weather starts to get cooler, you can dream about the hot summer days you had by eating a few of these blackened shrimp tacos!

- Warming Tortillas - There are a few ways to warm tortillas.
- Microwave - You can place the tortillas on a microwave safe plate with a damp paper towel wrapped around them for 15 seconds.
